. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on suburban women in our cnn p
. senator rob portman, was he a tougher debater in those practice sessions than president obama turned out to be? >> senator portman is very effective. i think president obama and i both have a good chance to describe our respective views as to how we'd do a better job. and i, frankly, think i benefited from the fact that rather than having people learn about me from ads prepared by my opposition, they got to actually hear what i would do for myself. and i think that helped me. i think the president also got to lay out his plans and people were able to make a comparison. but as for rob portman, he's a pretty effective guy. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> well, i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happened to disagree with those policies. i mean, when we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years, which is another stimulus, hiring more government workers, picking winners and losers in industries that he favors, raising taxes. these are ideas

: that was then senator barack obama take on rising gas prices at a campaign stop vowing to raise prices on gas and oil companies calling for a new direction in america's oil prices as prices in california soared to an all-time lie over the weekend. what happened? >> reporter: the president is here in california driving by some of these gas station, he has seen prices like this behind me. the 76 station, $4.99 for regular gasoline. regular unled is $5.39. there is a number of reasons for this. one, high demand, two, california has more strict standard for gasoline. you can't import it from outside the state. the refineries that make it gas, several of them have gone down because of a major fire in august. prices are high and consumers are not happy. >> i have never seen gas prices anywhere near this. >> it's shock. i have a lot of driving to done i have to fill up my car. >> i just spent $70 and this will only last me a week. >> it's ridiculous. >> reporter: governor brown changed the standard to the winter standard that could bring the prices down some. but even if they come down some they are signifi
, and current tv. >> bill: okay. in the next hour we'll talk to bill straus a surrogate for the obama campaign and massachusetts senator. greg albright says hey, bill great show. today was my first day listening. thank you, greg. tell all of your friends. frank points out, i remember how ward dean's screen was played over and over again to ruin his primary hopes. now we hear how bad president obama's performance was. and kirk says the media ought to be more honest. and mitt should never have been allowed to get away with so any blatant lies. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." lop blooep [♪ theme music ♪] >> bill: good morning, everybody. what do you say in this thursday, october 11th. good to see you today welcome to nat's headquarters and welcome to the "full court press" here on current tv. we have got a lot to talk about this morning. how about this? oh my god for a long time we considered lance arm strong our hero, then he learned that he just might have been on performance-enhancing drugs, and now the latest report shows that lance arm strong was head of a
or the opposite. >> it's not fair because barack obama-- this is a man who hasn't pressed the democrat senate to put forth a budget. >> we znt had a budget. >> so it's absurd to say that. do i believe that mitt romney needs to off specifics? i do. that's what will inspire confidence in voters. i think the more information they have with respect to education, with respect to the economy and respect to how, how you're going to implement the changes i think the better, but for barack obama who hasn't offered any specifics at all is a ridiculous claim. >> i don't think that's necessarily true, for americans making $250,000 or less and he had a fair and balanced proechd. >> he's not cutting taxes, he's raising via obamacare and a ton of taxes on the middle class. >> we neat fact checks and nonpartisan, says that mitt romney's numbers are not true and if they're making that-- >> cbo said what about obamacare, it's going to raise taxes on the middle class. you've got conflicting statements. >> 30 days left. can you keep the passion going? >> i can. >> and great to see you this morning. >> thank you.
and senator john mccain cried foul over the obama campaign's new bird ad. >> elmo is -- has been seen in a white suburban he's driving for the border. oscar is hide out in his trash can. we're cracking down on them. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring the hammer down on sesame street. >> one thing that president obama can't run on is his record, and so big bird, i guess, is a fun thing to talk about. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and mitt romney are heading back to ohio today in a very different situation than the last time they campaigned in the battleground state. the new pew poll know shows governor romney ahead among likely voters. it's the latest dose of reality for the obama camp in a race that is evolving with only weeks left until election day. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor o of postpolitics.com and mark halperin for "time" and msnbc. joining us from chicago. chris cizilla, first of all to you, the new polls certainly have given a great bu
president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in religions, it's part of our heritage. we can't walk away from the middle east, but it's a very tough, it's a very dangerous and it's a very turbulent region. and we take risks in being out there. >> former u.s. ambassador to iraq and turkey, jim jeffrey, thank you. >> thank you. >>> tens of thousands may have been given the contaminated steroid injections that are blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak, but some say they saw it com
what happens. thank you. >> okay. thanks. >>> more evidence today that president obama's underwhelming performance may have an affect on candidates down ballot. recent poll out of massachusetts after the debate shows senator brown ahead of challenger warren. that's almost a complete reversal of the numbers a week before the debate. the same poll had warren leading brown 46-44. tonight, the two senate candidates face each other. this is a third debate they have gone at it. reporter noah bearman joins me. we have seen the race go up and down. one of the most watched. you have thousands of people show up for their last debate. how do we know with any certainty that this is a down ballot impact that scott brown is seeing and maybe not the result of the debate they had? >> we don't know for sure and we don't know for sure whether the polls are temporary or signify a larger trend. she's been up in polls before this one. occasionally she's been down and come back up again. >> yeah. >> but the thing that's sort of interesting about this one is that this is hardly going to be a swing state in t
the obama lead narrowing in iowa and and pulling ahead in colorado. guest spot today, a man that knows about swing states and especially the centennial state, that's democratic senator mark udall of colorado. welcome to the show. i guess i want to start -- we're hearing, you know, pushback i think of liberals and supporters saying everybody calm down on the democratic side. not time to panic yet. let's see how it sorts out. at the same time we have all year first time an average of all polls showing mitt romney in the lead in this race. i'm wondering as a democrat and obama supporter how real is the possibility right now that mitt romney can win this election? >> steve, thanks for having me on. we ought to all take a deep breath. campaigns have twists and turns. last week was a challenging week for the president and the campaign but there's 27 days left to go. the president has the right, forward-looking agenda. coming to colorado, people here care about issues and clear contrasts of governor romney and president obama. we have a diverse state coming to the geography. eastern plains growing
senator joe manchin. welcome to both of you. what do you think did president obama just throw away the election, throw in the towel? >> no, you've got to love this business. a few weeks ago it was the owe owe president obama was skating to victory, there was nothing that was going to stop him and governor romney was dead and his political fortunes were over. in the split of a second it is almost the opposite. there are four weeks to go, there are still a lot of campaigning to do, critical debates have to happen. the president did not have a good debate, i think that is self-evident. moving on i think you have two key debates and the vice presidental debate that will be really critical. how each candidate performs in those debates will have an incredible significance in who wins the president. he's got to come in especially in his first debate, the president, in the town hall and hold governor romney's feet to the fire about his policies, hess facts and make him explain his contradictions and how his policies will not work. jon: chris he says that you've got to love this business --
down and that does help republicans down the ballot, it means they will pick up senate seats, and they're not going to lose as many house seats as maybe they worried about predebate. >> giving the obama campaign or the inability to let the debate go in terms of the dialogue, what do you hear about the cold hand of fear grabbing chicago? >> well, it is. and it's funny, look, whenever there's a bad moment in a campaign, then suddenly fingers begin pointing, so then there is what's going on with debate prep, how come that didn't go well, that's just naturally someone that was part of it not wanting to take full blame. so there it's a little bit of that. i think you're going to see internally that nothing's changed. but i'm hearing chatter that maybe some people from the last debate are going to at least get involved in the debate prep process. he will bring in some of these sharpest communicators to do that. >> and of course as i said to my friends in the obama administration, every administration as many seasons, every campaign has many seasons, last week, a lot of people were saying thi
. rick santorum, the former senator from pennsylvania well known and well respected among social conservatives. mitt romney has -- you know, the campaign, again, saying no. nothing has changed. the obama campaign is trying to, you know, portrait mitt romney as a flip-flopper, and they also go back and foint to, you know, his philosophy or his stance on abortion back when he was governor of massachusetts. that's different from now, fred. >> there's also a chance that the next president will select at least one supreme court justice. right now the court is evenly split on the issue of abortion. is romney downplaying the importance of abortion rights over the next four years? >> good question, because, yes, most likely the next president, be it president obama or mitt romney, as the first-term president will have at least one, maybe two supreme court picks to make. it is interesting here because, you know, besides what the campaigns are saying, you're seeing a lot of independent groups like planned parenthood on one side and seeing social conservatives on the other side playing this
republican senators. it started as the gang of six. this was a group that was frustrated two years ago when the bipartisan national fiscal commission, the commission that congress established and president obama signed into law to deal with the nation's rising debt load -- the fiscal commission not, came up with a plan, and it essentially went nowhere because they did not get enough votes from the panel to spark the next stage with these legislative actions. so, a group of six senators started meeting privately, sometimes in secret, to try to see if there was something big to do with this framework. these are very big political and policy decisions. they are very complex. they take a lot of political will at a time when congress does not seem to have that kind of will. these six, perhaps they could come up with something. they have been meeting for two years. they added two members. we could go through the list. the republican side -- senator sexy chambliss, senator mike crapo, -- senator chambliss, senator mike crapo, tom coburn of oklahoma, and and and the democratic side is mark warner,

[ buzzer ] >> stephanie: that's right. that's all i hear when i go to wisconsin. >> but he is probably doing a lot more important stuff now with progressives united than he could have done -- >> stephanie: yeah. that being said his break is now over. corky in rochester, new york. >> caller: hello yeah, i'm surprised nobody is appalled that romney would get up on stage and say my sons are all liars, and that's why my husband learned so well. >> stephanie: yeah all of their stories are just weird. what was the last one flurg or flag jor -- what is his name? tagg? he won a race by tripping somebody's girlfriend.
